Parental Supervision in the Lobby and other Public Areas

Please make sure that you are with your child at all times in the public areas of SRO. Our Lobby and Hallways are becoming much to noisy which disturbs lessons taking place in the teaching rooms. We love how your children get along, but we need you to keep an eye on them so everyone remains safe and lessons can take place peacefully. Parents should not ask students to watch their children. An adult needs to be with them at all times.

Summer Suzuki Institutes and Workshops

We interrupt this winter weather with news about some great summer opportunities!

Many of our families choose to enhance their musical education by attending a Summer Suzuki Institute. In locations all across the US and Canada, these events offer an incredible combination of Suzuki instruction, artistic enrichment, parent education and fun social events.  We continually hear how families have reinvigorated their music study through these experiences.

Also, there are periodic opportunities to attend workshops which are targeted to a variety of student levels and interests.  We would like to bring the following two to your attention for Summer 2018, these are 4-week workshops offering outstanding instructional and performance experiences to serious students ages 12/13 and above, and the first registration deadline is February 1 .
